Melinda Joven, a breast cancer survivor of 14 years, as of June 30, 2011.  She is now 61 years old.  I did a modified radical mastectomy on her left breast cancer (invasive ductal carcinoma) in 1997, when she was 47 years old.  The breast cancer was approximately 3 cm.  Armpit nodes were negative for cancer spread.  She took tamoxifen for 5 years.  She is happy and I am happy.  We both thank God for the remission.  An inspiration of hope!
